Trail Information



This towering sculpture trail sought to bring together communities from all corners of the city, and encourage them to look up at the spectacular art on offer while supporting Break, a charity working in Cambridge and Cambridgeshire to raise aspirations of the county’s young care leavers.

Our hope was as you gazed up at the giraffes you would see them as we do - a representation of Break, standing tall for young people with care experience and telling them that the sky is never the limit.
